Nothing hurts us more than the loss of our mothers. It happens with both humans and animals. Motherhood even plays an essential part in an animal’s life. Baby wild animals can’t survive in the wild without their mother’s love and protection. They will struggle with hunger, thirst, and threats from nature (and humans). And poorly, some can’t wait until they get help. No one wants to witness these heartbreaking incidents.
The cute gang of 8 orphaned baby hedgehogs in this story gets a happy ending. 8 adorable young siblings found love and care in their surrogate mother’s hug – Musya the cat.
The newborns refused to be fed unnaturally, from a bottle or syringe. It meant that they might be starved if the situation kept going on. Luckily, the cute pack was adopted by a dedicated cat mom.
Musya had taken care of some other foster kittens before, so she still had milk left in her. When she was introduced to eight baby hedgehogs, she didn’t hesitate to open her arms for them.
The mom cat fed her spiked babies and became a wet nurse to all. She never missed caring for them at night. She treated them as her own and spent the best for her children.
These heartwarming moments were captured on camera and went viral when shared on the Internet. The bond between the mom cat and her hedgehog babies is one of the purest things in this world.

Before 8 young siblings were safe under their mom cat’s arm, they were found orphaned and blind at Sadgorod Zoo in Vladivostok, southeastern Russia. The cuties were starving.
Fortunately, the adoption came in time and saved their life. It took them a couple of seconds to approach their foster mom. When the gang felt her warmth and the smell of milk, they immediately understood what to do.
It’s such a beautiful scene to see! Love and kindness can give one a second chance for a happier life. If you love the mom cat and her 8 hedgehog babies, just share this post with your family and friends!
